What Amaechi said after ministerial screening


Rotimi Amaechi, former Governor of Rivers and immediate past Minister of Transportation, has said poverty alleviation at all levels of government is the panacea to lingering insecurity in the country.

Amaechi, a ministerial nominee, spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Abuja, following his screening at the Senate.

He stressed that only viable and productive economy that creates jobs will surmount the spate of insecurity in the country.

He commended the APC-led federal government for devising templates aimed at revamping the economy.

“This government knows the problems of the country which they inherited.

“That is why President Muhammadu Buhari declares war against poverty as a means to ending insecurity,’’ he said.

The prospective minister restated the need to revitalize the economy for sustainable development at all levels.
